Weighing 154 grams (6 ounces!) and measuring 6 3/8” from wing tip to wing tip, the bird tests out at about 14K gold using a jeweler’s streak plate and calibrated acids...

This 2 5/8” tall, simply decorated, spread eagle pendant (TF97.148) is from the Veraguas horizon of Panama dating c.500-1200AD.
